The only adcom member crazy enough to come on here and post is LizzyM and I think a few others. I doubt most of them really have the time to waste posting on here.

She won't admit to what school she is from. I think it would be funny if she was some weird pimple-faced high school kid messing with all of us.

If she told us who she was or where she works, she'd be inundated in minutes with pleas for help from applicants to that school. She'd have to quit posting here shortly thereafter. Her anonymity protects her and allows her to give what help she can.

OP, what are you asking?

What if it's worse? What if it's some fellow pre-med who is going around pretending to be an adcom and give out bad advice to sabotage people? :scared:




And that ladies and gents, is paranoia at work.

How about you ask the question and we can comment. Most of us aren't interviewers, but we certainly have some perspective.

Greetings all! I'm looking for some Med School Interview advice. I'd like to prepare by educating myself more about healthcare reform and hot topics. I'd like to be prepared for those, "what should we do about healthcare disparities" questions. Can anyone suggest some helpful websites with useful information on current issues and events in healthcare?

Thanks!

I mean, how else do these adcoms have so much time to spend 24/7 on SDN??
The (minimal) demands of a job in academia...

Nothing like necro-bumping a thread from a million years ago... anyway, I recommend The Wall Street Journal which you can read in hard copy (your school library might have a subscription) or online (ditto for access through your school) . The New York Times is another source and somewhat to the left of the Journal. If you have an "edu" email address you may get online access at a deep discount. JAMA and The New England Journal of Medicine have some interesting papers on topics related to health care reform and health disparities. It is possible to get the table of contents emailed to you each week so you can seek out the articles that specifically interest you. Subscriptions are expensive but you may be able to get it through your school library.

Finally, their are blogs of some value including one from Kaiser http://kff.org/

SDN has a rule prohibiting you from using real names, i think but there is one SDNer who has his real name in his signature. he is a MD at baylor, i think
